Things on my Spring TBR Pile

Ah, spring… new weather, new clothes, new flowers… and new books.  So, what books am I breathlessly waiting for this spring? Here they are. (This list made me realize that I read A LOT of series, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance…)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme started on the Broke and the Bookish blog.
They set the topic, we make the lists. Visit their site to see more on this topic

Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs. Book #9 in the Mercy Thompson series. This urban fantasy series features Mercy, a female werecoyote auto mechanic, and her exploits with the local Werewolf pack. This is one of my all-time favorite series and I cannot wait for Fire Touched to come out. Squee!

Marked In Flesh by Anne Bishop. Book #4 in the Others series. Humans are not the dominant species on earth, the Others are… and the Others have been known to eat a human or two when annoyed. I loved the first book in this series and am looking forward to seeing the story continue.
Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter. Book #10 in the Jane Yellowrock series. Jane is a Skinwalker, a Cherokee shape shifter, who started off killing rogue vampires. Now, she has become the Enforcer for the New Orleans’ vampire Master of the City. But no worries… Jane still gets to kill vampires and other nasty critters.
Bright Blaze of Magic by Jennifer Estep. This is the 3rd book in the (Teen) Black Blade series. When you live in “The most magic place in America,” tourists flock, Magic mob-like Families rule, and thief Lila is just trying to hide her magic and survive the city that murdered her mother.

Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater. Book #4 in the (Teen) Raven Cycle series. Blue comes from a family of Seers. Gansey and his friends are looking for the long lost Welsh king Glendower’s grave. Gansy and his friends ask Blue for help in their search.  What they find is where legends (and magic) are born.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Book #2 in the Court of Thorns and Roses (Teen) series. Anything written by Maas is worth reading and I can’t wait to see what fairy tale the second book in this series is going to retell. (The first one was a Beauty and the Beast retelling… So good.)

Camp Alien by Gini Koch.  Book #13 in the Katherine "Kitty" Katt Series. Aliens have come to Earth and one of them has just become president. His wife, the (human) Kitty… is nothing like the typical politician wife… snarky, kick-butt, and more likely to shoot someone than to talk to them. A fun, irreverent series about life, love, and aliens.

The Last Star by Rick Yancey. Final book (#3) in the Teen dystopic 5th Wave trilogy. Aliens have invaded earth and are trying to wipe humans from the planet. The first 4 waves have decimated the human population… will the fifth wave be the end for humanity?

The Hunt by Megan Shepherd. The second book in the Cage series. (Teen) Five human teenagers have been kidnapped by aliens and have been placed in an alien Zoo. Will they have to befriend their captors to someday find their way home?

And, to follow the Adult coloring book trend for the new year, the thing I am most looking forward to actually made its appearance on February 23rd – The Doctor Who Coloring Book by Price Stern Sloan.  Who wouldn’t be excited about coloring Daleks, the TARDIS, and all the special “wibbily wobbly, timey wimey” things found in the Doctor Who universe?
